Simone Mätzig, Judit Druks, Ad Neeleman, Gordon Craig
2010 Journal of Neurolinguistics

K. Roussel, M.-C. Boivin

The corrections are generally precise and made immediately after a problem is detected.  ...  Their diagnosis strategies are mainly reflections, grammaticality judgments and rereadings.  ...  Grammaticality judgments were mostly verbalized by C14 and C9, ranked above the median, and by C6, ranked below the median. The 11 other diagnosis strategies were used less frequently.  ...

2015 Bergen Language and Linguistics Studies  
This paper concerns preposition use in oral language produced by advanced Norwegian learners of English, using primary data from an oral learner corpus (LINDSEI-NO).  ...  These results about spoken preposition use are then contrasted with results from a corresponding investigation into preposition use in a written learner corpus (NICLE), allowing for comparison of preposition  ...  Such self-correction is the exception rather than the rule, however, as there is some pressure to continue speaking despite grammatical inaccuracies, which might often go unnoticed by both the speaker  ...

Having Linguistic Rules and Knowing Linguistic Facts

Peter Ludlow
2009 The Baltic International Yearbook of Cognition, Logic and Communication  
I'm going to make the case that the best way to talk about grammatical rules is simply to say that we have them.  ...  Saying I have such a rule invites the interpretation that it is a rule for me-that I am normatively guided by it. The competence theory thus becomes a theory of the rules that we have.  ...  We could achieve this, if the rule functioned as a kind of regulator in the sense deployed by engineers -something that regulates the system for error and corrects when necessary.  ...
